Full Description
Kent Wedding Award winners 2019, 2016 and 2013. The Barn has been uniquely reconstructed from a centuries old Elizabethan barn which was originally built in a Kent village and re-erected on its present site in the heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells some years ago. It is full of oak beams and columns throughout and creates a wonderful atmosphere which is absolutely perfect for weddings. The traditional Kentish style of the building is complemented with a beautiful stylish Orangery where your ceremony would take place and opens out on to the award-winning courtyard garden. Another unique feature of The Barn is that you can have exclusive use of the entire venue and gardens with absolutely no venue or reception hire charges, which adds to the exceptional value which our inclusive packages offer. Your wedding breakfast will be served in our pretty restaurant which is full of rustic atmosphere. Again, uniquely at The Barn, we offer your guests a choice of menu for each course and the inclusive drinks package includes champagne as standard for both reception drinks and the toast. As the time for dancing approaches, The Barn transforms into a magical and romantic evening venue with the building and garden illuminated in twinkling lights. With no reception venue hire charges, you can invite up to 150 evening guests at no extra cost. We have made arrangements for specially discounted rates for our wedding guests in nearby selected hotels. Please take a moment to visit our wedding page on our website to read our testimonials from our lovely couples. The Barn has been privately owned for 25 years and been proudly managed this entire time by our General Manager Philippe, who looks forward to personally showing you around our lovely venue.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Philippe
When commencing our journey of hosting weddings, from the outset my aim was to provide an intimate wedding venue with a more personal approach. For me, the personal approach is important as no two weddings are the same. Getting to know you well during the planning stages ensures I can deliver a wedding unique to you and also the reason we do not employ wedding coordinators. I look forward to the possibility of getting to know you and listening to your plans.

Cannot recommend enough
We chose The Barn as our wedding venue and reception because of its quaint and cosy feel. We had a party of 50 and we fitted comfortably. If anyone wants a small but intimate wedding day myself and my new husband could not recommend this venue enough. From the start, it was a smooth easy approach, communication was excellent and both Philippe and Janet (owners) could not have been more approachable. The efficiency of them both is outstanding, the day itself went so smoothly and with no hiccups! We were kept informed throughout the day/evening on everything, the food was so great we had loads of compliments from our family and friends. The service was impeccable, never an empty glass and everyone was so polite! The DJ was amazing he listened to the preferred music taste myself and hubby liked and was really lovely. The buffet was great lots to choose from and again we had so many compliments on that. I can't express the gratitude I have for this venue and the lovely people making it so amazing. If you are thinking of visiting The Barn please do! You will not be disappointed. Thank you Philippe, Janet and the The Team for making our day that much more memorable xxx

Perfect wedding day
Perfect wedding day! Philippe and Janet were fantastic right from initial enquiries, viewing the venue to planning our wedding (on such a short timescale!) They were always on hand to answer any queries and put our minds at rest. It was a very stress free experience. The venue was perfect for us and was made even more so with the setting out of our decorations which was done beautifully. Staff where all attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. Not to mention all the little touches they and their staff provided that made it that little bit more personal from helping unload the car when dropping off the day before, moving centre pieces from upstairs to downstairs after the meal, giving us left over bottles of wine to take away to reloading the car when we came to pick it all up! The day was perfect, we want to do it all again and we would 100% recommend it to anyone looking for a more personal venue! Huge thanks again.

Fantastic day
My husband and I tied the knot at The Barn in November ‘19 and the day was just perfect! Philippe, Janet and the team are the lovely, helpful and friendly. They all made our special day that little bit more special. We especially loved how laidback the team were, we went at our own pace, the team fed off our guests and our needs without us asking, timings we’re not stuck in stone so we had the freedom to sneak off to Calverley Park for photos with our amazing photographer (as recommended by the Barn!) and our guests were looked after so well they didn’t notice us gone! From my husband and I, thank you! Our families and friends were so impressed and we all had a fantastic day! See you soon for dinner. Bobbie and Wes P.s. if you’re reading this and thinking of booking your wedding at the Barn - do it!

Just what I'd dreamed of
Dear Phillipe and Janet Now that life has returned to normal, I thought I'd take some time to thank you and your wonderful staff for the part you all played in making our wedding day so special. The day couldn't possibly have gone more smoothly. It was everything I'd planned and more. Having a free rein to plan the day as I wished was ideal for a control freak like me - and my husband was suitably impressed with my efforts! The Barn looked beautiful and stylishly simple. Just what I'd dreamed of. Our guests have made many comments about how delicious the food was and the waiting staff were very professional - discreetly going about their duties without any disruption to the celebrations. Many special memories were made that day and will be remembered for years to come. Once again, thankyou so much.

Our guests were blown away!
We have only just managed to take a moment to reflect on our day, as it passed by so quickly, and we wanted to send over a message of thanks. Chris and myself could not thank you enough, from the very beginning when we were looking to view The Barn right up until the day after you were all so wonderful. You made our day possible, you have been so very helpful with all of our enquiries, millions of questions and plans for the day as was Phillipe during our meetings prior to the big day! Philippe and his team truly made the whole of The Barn look spectacular, making my vision of ‘the perfect venue’ into a reality, it actually exceeded all expectations (apologies to them for having to unpack boxes and boxes of decor) and our guests were blown away with how beautiful the ceremony and reception rooms looked. Now for the food… what can I say?! To start, our guests were astounded at the ability to choose their own food prior to the day and then even more so when we mentioned that we had such a wide and varied choice to narrow it down from. When the food came out everyone was pleased with their choices, all of the food looked delicious and it came out hot and perfectly cooked. Many guests mentioned how they enjoyed the fact they received a ‘proper meal’ unlike most weddings that they had been to before (and we were extremely grateful for our surprise ‘three for me’ puddings too, our favourite!). Although we were too busy dancing to eat much buffet food in the evening the spread looked wonderful and it was great to have been saved a plate by the kitchen to take home at the end of the night, what a lovey touch! We would like to thank Philippe and all of the staff at The Barn for their service on the day, they really did go the extra mile to ensure it all ran smoothly and that we had the perfect day. Phillipe was so organised and helpful throughout and we even got chaperoned to Calverley park by Paul, armed with umbrellas, and showing us all of the best spots for photos. It truly was the most wonderful day, made even more so by friendly, funny and extremely helpful members of the team. Our parents and grandparents have all said how The Barn did us extremely proud, the highest of compliments, and we couldn’t have wished for a better day. Again, thank you so so much for making our day what it was. Beyond expectations, extremely special and so unique. All our love, Mr & Mrs Morgan. xx

Everything we hoped it would be
Dear Janet, Philippe and everyone at The Barn, Thank you for hosting our wedding, Neil and I had the most wonderful day. It was relaxed, informal and everything we hoped it would be. Your attention to detail was amazing and very reassuring in the weeks and days leading up to the wedding. The Barn looked beautiful on the day and our guests were taken care of from the moment they arrived until the last person left. The food was very good and people appreciated that they had a choice of menu options. When I arrived and I went upstairs to talk to the Registrars, the noise from the bar below was incredible. I could hear the sounds of conversation and laughter as friends and family came together and I knew the day was off to a good start. Thanks again for making our wedding day so special. Love, Vicky and Neil
